    A client of mine is having problems with his rebill-cronjob. The billing cronjob exits after (about) 30 seconds and most of the time 4 or 5 rebills.

    This is the message sent by crond:

    lynx: Can't access startfile
    I have set max_execution_time to 300 (instead of 30 seconds) for all these php.ini's on my cPanel server and it's given correctly in phpinfo.php;
    Code:
    /var/cpanel/version/php.ini-2
    /etc/php.ini
    /usr/lib/php.ini
    /usr/local/lib/php.ini
    /usr/local/lib/php.ini.new
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/etc/php.ini
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/lib/php.ini
    /home/cpins/installd/buildapache/php-4.3.9/pear/tests/php.ini

    Questions
    Would using /usr/bin/php instead of /usr/bin/lynx make any difference?
    How can I let the lynx output be sent to my e-mail adress?
    Is there any problem with lynx maybe? It automaticly exists after xxx seconds?
    I am running APF Firewall, is that a problem?
    Is Apache exiting running the php-file or is lynx exiting?

    Any advise is welcome!

    Anybody?

    cPanel Support responded: "We don't support 3rdparty software". Actually it's only a php-script, no actual software. But they are not willing to help.

    Ahy advise is welcome.

    The error actually states whats going on.

    It cannot access that site.

    I just noticed, is that the real name for the domain call? www.paid-content-website.com ??

    That domain is not registered. [ERROR: The parent servers say that the domain paid-content-website.com does not exist.]

    I'd rather keep the identity of this domain secret.

    This is a paid-content website, and the owner wants to stay anonymous.

    I can assure u, the domain is working perfectly and no DNS-settings are wrong.

    Wasn't sure that's why I asked.

    It is possible depending on the frequency of the cronjob makeing the request that it in itself is causing the issue. For example if you mod_dosevasive loaded with Apache and you hit your site too repeadly you can essentially block yourself for a short period of time which would cause that exact error.

    It's only ran once a day. Wasn't the problem.

    We had to move client to another server installing clean cPanel-server. Having to do the rebills manually (by going to the cronjob-link) was unacceptable.
